Lump on the middle of neck, soreness on side of neck, clicking on moving neck. Normal?

I have a lump on about the middle of my neck on the right side and on the left side my neck seems sore. I have had a problem with my tonsils and i sometimes feel as if my throat or esophagus? Is not in the right place or it will move from side to side with an abnormal clicking sound. Now that is only when i move manually will it do the clicking but sometimes it will do it if i swallow or move my tounge. Is this normal?

hello and welcome to HCM,

You seem to be having a multitude of problems all centering on your throat, lets try and evaluate one by one.....
-Any lump in the neck should be investigated further, consult an ENT and he may suggest in terms of imaging/FNAC to get a diagnosis of the lump
-If you throat feels sore you must take warm water, try salt water gargling and avoid spicy food. But if none of them work then ENT consultation is a must
-Finally about your throat not being in the right place, anyway some amount of clicking sound is normal on moving it from side to side. In fact the absence of the clicking sound is a bad sign so do not worry!

nevertheless, if all these symptoms are bothering you then you must definitely consult your ENT at the earliest possible date.

take care
